Who We Are
This Website is maintained and operated by Eclipse Ventures, LLC (“Eclipse”), which provides administrative and other services to Eclipse entities. In accordance with industry custom, this Website occasionally uses terminology that may be interpreted to suggest that our firm is a single entity. However, there is no such single entity and all the entities that comprise our firm have their own separate legal existence.
Except for certain Materials provided through a password protected area on this Website (see below), ALL MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” MAY NOT BE RELIED UPON FOR ANY PURPOSE, AND ARE NOT SUBJECT TO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. In particular, except to the extent that Materials provided through a password protected area on this Website are subject to different rules, we make no representations or warranties with regard to the Materials’ accuracy, completeness, non-infringement or fitness for a particular purpose. You should be aware that a significant portion of the Materials include or consist of information that has been provided by third parties and has not been validated or verified by us. In connection with our investment activities, we often become subject to a variety of confidentiality obligations to funds, investors, portfolio companies and other third parties. Any statements we make may be affected by those confidentiality obligations, with the result that we may be prohibited from making full disclosures. Without limitation on the effect of other warnings and disclaimers set forth in these Terms, you should interpret any statements we make (on this Website or otherwise) in that context. Please ensure that your own computer security is comprehensive and up-to-date. We accept no responsibility for viruses, malware, or other malicious or damaging software contained in the Materials or otherwise.
No Offer, Solicitation or Advice
Except to the extent expressly set forth in Materials provided through a password protected area on this Website, or as otherwise specified by an Eclipse entity in writing, nothing on this Website is intended to constitute (i) an offer, or solicitation of an offer, to purchase or sell any security, other asset or service, (ii) investment advice or an offer to provide such advice, or (iii) a basis for making any investment decision. Except as expressly stated by an Eclipse entity in writing, neither this Website nor any of the Materials make any effort to present a comprehensive or balanced description of Eclipse or its investment activities. This material presented is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as investment advice. Our views and opinions expressed in any website content are current at the time of publication and are subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
This Website is intended solely to provide information regarding Eclipse’s potential financing capabilities for prospective portfolio companies. The information provided on this Website, including information regarding Eclipse’s current and historical portfolio companies and other investments, is not intended to recommend any company or investment described herein and is not an offer or sale of any security or investment product or investment advice. It should not be assumed that results for portfolio investments will be achieved for other investments. Eclipse does not solicit or make its services generally available to the public.
One should not assume that all investments in the companies identified are or will be profitable.
